Liverpool To Oust Man United And Chelsea To £62m Striker
Liverpool are set to go head-to-head with both Manchester United and Chelsea for one of the world’s best centre-forwards this summer.
Gonzalo Higuain has been one of the most prolific strikers on the planet this term and it is going to be difficult for Napoli to keep hold of him, should he fancy a crack at the Premier League. Arsenal have long been linked with a move, but Wenger’s cautiousness has put paid to that.
United are more interested in a Cristiano Ronaldo reunion, while Chelsea will only move if Diego Costa pushes for a return to Spain. That leaves the Anfield club in poll position to snare the Argentinian and Jurgen Klopp is set to be backed with £62m to convince the 28-year-old to move to Merseyside.

Chelsea Stunned By Stones Fee And Head To Palace
Chelsea love a surprise signing - Michael Hector and Papa Djilobodji anyone? – and they could be set for another after Everton’s new-found wealth has seen them baulk at the asking price for the England defender.
Instead, they are set to turn to the Crystal Palace rock, Scot Dann. The Liverpudlian is always mentioned as one of the league’s best and most underrated stoppers but it would be a massive jump from Selhurst Park to Stamford Bridge.
The fee is set to be around the £20m mark but with John Terry about to leave, the Blues need defensive reinforcements and see Dann as a reliable option to have around the squad.

Arsenal Cult Hero Set For Sunderland
Emmanuel Eboue is considered something of a legend in north London. Many would say that is more to do with his character than his footballing abilities but he is a player remembered fondly by all those associated with the Premier League.
Well, it turns out that the 32-year-old could be back for a mini swansong. Sam Allardyce loves snaring an elder statesman and it seems he could have convinced Eboue to join Sunderland’s relegation battle.
His experience could be vital in the run-in, and let’s face it, he is sure to do something hilarious over the last few games of the campaign.
